Axes Gives Back: Alzheimer’s Association

“Together, We Can End Alzheimer’s Disease.” 

Axes is a small, locally owned and operated physical therapy company serving our communities in the Greater St. Louis Missouri and Illinois area. We’re fortunate to be able to offer our services at 20 locations, with the mission to help as many people as possible. Our profession is all about helping others and giving back. Through the service of physical and occupational therapy, we give our patients’ their livelihoods, lifestyles, and abilities back. Since giving back is the fundamental reason that our organization exists, it was important to the ownership and staff of Axes Physical Therapy to make sure that we are doing all that we can to give back to the communities we love.

Each month, Axes partners with a local, staff nominated charitable organizations to donate food, goods, clothes, and funds through our “Wear Jeans, Change Lives” initiative. Employees of Axes contribute to a St. Louis area charitable cause by automatic payroll deduction, this money goes into the Axes Foundation, and our employees get to wear jeans to work on Fridays. For the month of July, Axes is excited to partner with the Alzheimer’s Association, an impactful organization dedicated to supporting individuals and families affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Their mission is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research, to provide and enhance care and support for all affected, and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.

The Alzheimer’s Association takes a comprehensive approach to combating Alzheimer’s and supporting those affected. Through their initiatives, they aim to offer aid, advance research, and foster a community of support. Here are some key areas where the Alzheimer’s Association makes a significant impact:


Care and Support Programs:

The Alzheimer’s Association provides crucial aid to individuals and families facing the challenges of Alzheimer’s. This support includes a 24/7 helpline, support groups, and educational programs, ensuring that those affected by Alzheimer’s have access to the resources and assistance they need.

Research Initiatives:

The organization funds innovative research to better understand, treat, and ultimately cure Alzheimer’s disease. By supporting groundbreaking studies and clinical trials, the Alzheimer’s Association plays a vital role in advancing scientific knowledge and finding new treatments.

Advocacy and Awareness:

The Alzheimer’s Association engages in advocacy efforts to influence public policy and increase funding for Alzheimer’s research and care. They also raise awareness about the disease through various campaigns and events, helping to educate the public and reduce stigma.

The dedication of the Alzheimer’s Association to supporting those affected by Alzheimer’s aligns with Axes’ commitment to community service and empowerment. Axes is proud to support numerous individuals and families in the Greater St. Louis area who are impacted by Alzheimer’s. We believe in the power of support and relief, and we’re thrilled to partner with an organization that embodies these values.

Axes Physical Therapy is deeply rooted in the Greater St. Louis community.
